Solo Exhibition Set Up.

Today was day one of my first solo exhibition. It’s been a lot if preparation and hard work but it was great to finally see my work installed in a fantastic gallery space like the Sam Scorer in Lincoln. The room size was daunting when I brought my work in, but it has proved to fit incredibly well and each painting complimented the next with very precise and thought out juxtaposition and curating. It was a long night and an early start today but day one was a success. It was amazing to speak to people interested in my work and there was a lot of chit chat with some very fascinating people. Excited for the next 2 week and if you find yourself in the Lincoln area please pop by, It’s been a pleasure already and I’m only one day in. Here are a few snippets of the day… Katy x

Landscape Oil Painting

I have been commissioned to paint a landscape piece, based on a photo taken by the commissioner himself. It began as a mixed media piece however took an oil paint turn when the effects seemed to better suit the atmosphere of the image I was working from. The canvas itself is beautifully made and so lovely to work from! It is coming together, finally. Maybe a few more sessions and it will be ready to show its owner.

Gorilla -Finished!

So proud to have finished my commissioned gorilla piece and I am so excited to show it to you. Keep a lookout for a post very soon with a video, images and a description of the making of my painting 🙂 I now have share buttons (below) for Facebook, twitter and Pinterest. Can’t believe I hadn’t done it already! 🙂 Technology just flies over my head sometimes! Katy x
